Price Not Available



Perhaps the most unique, and least common Mercedes Sprinter offered in the North American market. This is a 2005 Mercedes Sprinter 118 Wheelbase, Super high roof. It’s the second to last year of the T1n, the first generation of Sprinters, known for their more simple mechanics, lack of complex diesel emissions systems, and robust longevity. This is a 39,000 original mile example, always garage kept, it is an immaculate van. You will not find a cleaner, more original example of one of these. It was purchased new by a surfer family in California in 2005 from Victory Dodge in Petaluma, CA and used primarily as a Sunday driver, to the beach and back home again. It was then purchased by a collector in 2022 who further perfected this van with a ceramic coat on the paint, professional powder coating of the original rims, professional sound deadening and insulation on the interior, aftermarket magnetized partition curtain installed on the interior, and a $1,500 premium stereo, upgraded speakers, subwoofer, viper alarm system, 4k Dash cam and back up camera were all installed last year as well under the previous owner. Maintenance has been regularly performed with fluids all flushed and replaced in 2021, and the EGR was replaced in 2022, all service performed with Mercedes benz parts. The 15″ Mercedes rims are wrapped in BFG K02 235 size tires, allowing for more clearance, as well as more traction in all weather situations. This van has only 39,500 miles, and presents, drives, and smells like new. It has been regularly used and maintained each year, but with very minimal miles driven, it is a true survivor. The paint shines like new, the exterior plastics and rubbers shine and feel like new, everything works as it should on this van. These 118 high roofs are exceptionally rare birds, with a turning radius roughly the same as a Subaru wagon, and an interior standing height of over 6ft, they are an incredibly versatile and nimble platform. Very economical to run, this van gets 27mpg on the highway. At Ottoex, we have taken it a step further, perfecting the Mercedes badging conversion with all proper OEM Mercedes parts sourced from Europe, as well as performing further preventative maintenance on the van: a new fuel filter was installed, the transmission was fully survived with new OEM spec fluid, pan gasket, filter, and socket plug. The rear differential was serviced with new fluid, the engine air filter, and cabin air filter were also just replaced with fresh OEM parts. It is simply ready to be taken on adventures or put to work. Use it as a moto van, work van, overland rig, stealth camper, daily driver, grocery getter, whatever you want. You will not find a better condition, all original 118 Shorty Cargo High Roof Sprinter out there. This is a gem and hoping it goes to a good home, or into a museum.
